Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Pros

    I guess the bonuses are nice

    Cons

    This company doesn't care for their employees especially if you are at the bottom...not much room for growth, lack of support and resources from upper management, small team and high turnover. I was missing 3 people on my team and had to carry extra weight for over 8 months.
